Passport expiring in December this year. Need to transfer my h1b to the new employer that I just got the job offer from. Will there be an issue with USCIS because of this? Also, I moved out and I am currently living with a friend in another state which gets covered under a different Indian consulate. So I do not have any residence proof which will be needed by the Indian consulate to issue a new passport. Is there a way out of this mess?

Your new h1b transfer approval will be only till December. Once you have new passport, you will need to file an extension.

@OP - in 2019

It would be better if you do get your passport renewed asap so your H-1B approval will be it's full term instead on until your passport expiry date. I can't speak about the current situation with the pandemic but I had my passport renewed in the DC Indian Consulate and it was a surprisingly smooth process. I opted for the tatkal process as I had my H-1B renewal coming up and a planned trip to Mexico. I paid about $200 (I'll have to look this up to see if I'm in the right ballpark) and went there one day with all the documents needed. I got my passport delivered home within a week. Whichever state you're in, look up to see if that consulate is open and what they need for processing. I think it may not even matter if you don't have an address proof for that "area". Good luck 🤞

Thanks D1. Wonder what’s the protocol for tatkal these days ?

Do you have to be physically present in the US when your H1b petition is filed for extention and an amendment (attorney is seeking an extension at the same time as filing for an amendment)? The existing petition and visa are valid for 2 more years

I could likely get a job in MC, but I don't speak Spanish and my income would be much lower. How should we handle the decision of who moves where? We are both looking for tech jobs in the bay area, but we haven't had much success.
